A French Canadian who came to southern Idaho in 1818, Joseph Cote found this valley while trapping beaver.
Though he was thousands of miles from his Canadian base in Montreal, he had years of experience in Pacific Northwest exploration. With Michel Bourdon, who also discovered valleys near here, he had joined David Thompson's 1811 Columbia River explorers. Early trappers knew this valley as Cote's Defile because of his contributions to regional fur trade.
